Although acupuncture is over 2,000 years old, it was first documented in the text, "The Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine," written between 200 B.C. and 100 A.D. in China. It is one of the oldest and most commonly used medical practices in the world. Read about restoring the balance between yin and yang with these titles from our digital collections.

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM) is based on the principle that we are part of nature - it exists both around us and within our body. We reach optimal health when we live in harmony with the environment and when we achieve that balance within ourselves. TCM treats everybody as an individual. Everyone is unique. Two people may come in for the same issue but treatment will depend on the underlying cause.

An exponential growth to medicine and therapeutic procedure has been possible only in modern science. The sciences in general are a post-Renaissance development. The disciplines developed in its methods have superseded those of previous traditions. Therapeutic traditions progressed in human biology, their practices helping to cure or alleviate some of the ailments perceived in the lore of human constitution. Whatever its interpretation, bio-physiology has a substantial species continuity enabling a social use for Traditional Therapies. A rationale for them within medicine and its science must be established. Investigating Chinese Acupuncture may suggest an approach to the scientific potential of other Traditional Therapeutics and, importantly, address the issue of public safety. Knowledge transmitted through European, Asian, Arab and Persian civilisations includes medical traditions that contributed to the Renaissance development of Medical Sciences. Acupuncture today is indeed a constructive metaphor for transacting and developing specific traditional therapeutic methods in Health Systems of nations, while acknowledging limitations and improving safe delivery.
